Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. What a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns. And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source.

So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546 , or you can click the Donate button below.

On behalf of the entire team,
Harry Plantinga

62. Awake, my tongue! thy tribute bring

1 Awake, my tongue! thy tribute bring
To Him who gave thee power to sing;
Praise him who is all praise above,
The Source of wisdom and of love.

2 How vast his knowledge--how profound!
A depth, where all our thoughts are drowned;
The stars he numbers; and their names
He gives to all those heavenly flames.

3 Through each bright world above, behold
Ten thousand thousand charms unfold;
Each, air, and mighty seas combine
To speak his wisdom all-divine.

4 But in redemption--oh, what grace!
Its wonders--oh, what thought can trace!
Here wisdom shines for ever bright:
Praise him, my soul, with sweet delight.
